OH MY GOD! IM A DADDY!

ZOMG! I just looked in on my 30 gal, which has 2 apistogrammas in it. There is about 10 teeeny tiny littly fry following one of them around!!!! IM SO EXCITED!!! there doesnt seem to be more than those 10 or so, how do I protect them from the filter, and other fish? what do I feed them?

im so proud <sniffle>

Congrats. :)

You might want to put the fry and the mom in a seperate tank, but you could keep them in your current tank.

To feed them, use your regular food and kind of break it into little pieces so the babies can eat them.

I would buy a breeding tank. put the fry in it. the mom and other fish WILL eat the fry. The breeding tank is basically a seperate tank inside your tank that you can let them mature and when they are big enough you can let them free.

55 Gallon Aquarium
1 Black Kuhli Loach
3 Black Skirt Tetras
4 Angelfish (3 Marble, 1 Gold)
1 Glass Fish
2 Blue Sunset Gourami
3 African Dwarf Frog

Awww! Yay! Congrats. You can put the foot end of tights over the filter to keep them from getting sucked up. Thats what I have on my filter. My little guys still swimming around so I guess it works! :D

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
